Tonight, after several weeks of intense competition, there will be a winner of the Fort Hood Operation Rising Star competition. Join us 7 p.m. at the Phantom Warrior Center as the final 12 contestants battle it out. With the wide variety of music selections and the extensive talent in the competition, this show is sure to be something you’ll remember! During last week’s round there was even a marriage proposal from one of the contestants. On that note, congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Drouct! Remember, your unit can walk away with $300 if you win the Spirit Award. Essentially all your unit needs to do is show up and be sure to register with the judges. When the time comes, make the most noise and the judges will pick the biggest and loudest group as the winner!

Operation Rising Star is essentially the Army’s version of the popular hit TV series, “American Idol.” This event is being hosted Armywide at almost every installation around the world. The first-place winner will receive $500 for his or her ability to showcase their singing talents.

BOSS is continuing to team up with Pluckers in Killeen for the remaining two Thursdays this month to host a Modern Warfare 2 tournament. Each week 36 teams four-member teams will battle it out in an intense, chicken-wing-filled, double-elimination tourney. Come down and you could win a prize, but you’ll definitely have fun, win or lose.

I’m sure everyone has heard the rumors about openings in the office. What you may have heard is official; we are looking for two highly motivated Soldiers to step up to the plate and bring a new perspective and game to the Fort Hood BOSS program. Since these are executive positions, previous experience with BOSS is mandatory. Give us a call or stop by for more information. The positions open are vice-president and treasurer.

For more information on any of the events mentioned above, check out our website at www.hood.army.mil/BOSS. If you can’t find what you need, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 287-6116. We’ll help you out.

The BOSS program’s focus is on our single and unaccompanied Soldiers and servicemembers stationed at Fort Hood. We work hard to ensure that the quality of life while you’re here is the best it can be and we address any related issues as well.

Remember, it’s your life, your views and our future with Fort Hood BOSS.
